Calum MacCrimmon - When Birds Migrate
Piper Calum MacCrimmon's 'When Birds Migrate'.
Calum's piece looks at the commonality between Canada's Mi'kmaq tribes and the Scottish islanders who found new homes in Cape Breton during the 18th and 19th Centuries, as they prepare to survive the bitter Canadian winter.
A superb line-up of musicians perform the piece, including Calum on pipes and vocals, Fraser Fifield on kaval and whistle, Iain Sandilands on vibes and percussion, John Mulhearn on chanter and vocals, Robbie Ward on guitar and fiddle, and James Lindsay on bass.
